Media Advisory: Fraser Institute's Annual Alberta Elementary School Rankings Coming Saturday March 14

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 13, 2015) - The Fraser Institute's Report Card on Alberta's Elementary Schools 2015, the go-to source for measuring school improvement, will be released Saturday, March 14.

The report card provides parents with information they can't easily get anywhere else. In addition to five years of academic results, the report card shows which Alberta elementary schools have improved, or fallen behind, based on seven performance indicators derived from provincewide test results.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Saturday, March 14 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).

School results will be published in the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Sun newspapers.

The complete results for 813 elementary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can compare schools over a five year period.

Peter Cowley, co-author of the report card, will be in Calgary and available for media interviews on Saturday March 14 and Sunday March 15.
